Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo in Rosy Glow

Can we just dub this year the Year of the Highlight?  The Season of the Strobe? Seriously there are so many beautiful highlights on the market that I really don’t even know where to start.  Recently this Too Faced highlighter landed on my desk and I couldn’t wait to get it on my face.

AERIN | Evening Rose EDP*

aerin evening rose edp and rose body wash

With notes of blackberry, Bulgarian rose, rose centifolia, cognac and incense this perfume is not what typically comes to mind when I think of a rose fragrance.  Yes, of course, it smells like roses. However rather than being light and delicate, this fragrance is alluring, and a bit sexy in a classy way. This fragrance is warm and luxurious-- and I have been really enjoying it.

batiste dry shampoo review

Washing my hair is a real chore.  With thick wavy hair down to my waist, getting it to dry is a real nightmare.  I either end up leaving the house with wet hair, or going to sleep with a damp pillow.  Needless to say, once my hair is dry I want to keep my head away from the shower for as long as possible.  Keep reading for my Day 1, 2, and 3 styles and how I make it work!
